04/27/2014 - National Tryout - Tampa, FL
Jack showed his best ability to date, in all facets of his game, at his most recent Baseball Factory outing. Defensively, he was soft with his hands, fielding the ball in front and using his feet to throw with carry and accuracy. He showed good range and athleticism to make plays. Offensively, he had good natural leverage to hit with quick hands and a direct path. He worked through contact well and was accurate with the barrel. In all - Jack is a promising player that has improved time in and time out.

08/01/2012 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1
Jack is a strong SS/2B that will graduate in 2015. Feet are aggressive / athletic as he attacks ground balls and plays through well with his body. Hands are soft / clean / sure and he presents well out front in making all the plays. Throws are accurate through a loose arm action but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Gonzalez shows an athletic setup with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. Barrel accuracy is solid but needs to use lower half more to improve offensive grade. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard. With 3 years to further develop, Jack has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his abilities.
